How long to wait to conceive after a molar pregnancy?
At the end of September, I was diagnosed to have a molar pregnancy. (I was 10 weeks along in the pregnancy.)
My HcG levels fell every week after my D&C. In two months, my levels had dropped to zero. My doctor told
us to wait one year from diagnosis of the molar pregnancy to conceive a child again. I have read
cases where other doctors say six months of being at zero is sufficient waiting time. Do you
have any additional information for me? I meet with my doctor in February and am now
investigating to share information with the doctor. Thank you for your time.
One year following resolution of the molar pregnancy is the standard recommendation. When patients are older with concern of declining ovarian function, this time may be shortened.
